Travel Responsibly to Belize

Share |

Stann-creek-belize-beach Looking for a perfect spring break destination? Well how does an eco-friendly trip to Belize sound? For generations, the people of Belize have demonstrated a commitment to preserving the country’s unique charm. Belize offers a land rich in natural beauty and steep in the history and culture of its Maya past. Renowned for having the second largest barrier reef in the world, Belize’s pristine waters, exotic marine and wildlife, lush unspoiled landscapes and superb diving truly make it Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret.

And the Government of Belize intends to keep it this way, by committing to a four-year $13.5 million plan to promote and practice responsible tourism development in the country. The new sustainable tourism initiative outlines infrastructural projects that focus on the long-term preservation of Belize’s stunning natural resources, as well as developments in four the country’s more popular tourism destinations, including San Ignacio in the Cayo District, Placencia in the Stann Creek District, San Pedro on Ambergris Caye and Belize City.

“Our focus is to help build Belize as an emerging destination in a responsible way, thereby setting the tone for future developments and advances throughout the country,” said Tracy Panton, Director of Tourism for the Belize Tourism Board. “The initiatives presented in Belize’s new plan will promote sustainability and foster mutually beneficial relationships between residents and investors.”
